OnePlus Two specs and price teased by CEO

Nearly one year on from the OnePlus One launch and details are trickling out about the smartphone’s upcoming sequel.

Speaking to fans on Chinese social media service Weibo, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau offered clues as to what we can expect from the OnePlus 2.

For starters, the CEO suggests – or at least doesn’t deny – that the OnePlus Two may ship with a Snapdragon 810 on board, as reported by GizChina.

It’s been long-rumoured that the device will carry a Snapdragon 810, as the chip is expected to ship in the majority of this year’s high-end smartphones.

Some fans might not be so chuffed with the decision however, as the flagship chip has long been claimed to suffer from overheating issues, a problem that Qualcomm flatly denies.

Lau also finally gave us an idea of what price we might expect the OnePlus Two to retail at.

The unique selling point of the OnePlus One was that it offered high-end specs at a budget price point.

The CEO claimed a $403 (£265) price for the OnePlus Two sounds ‘reasonable’, which suggests that a similarly wallet-friendly R.R.P will be in store for the One’s sequel.

OnePlus still expects to launch the OnePlus Two in Q3 this year, but we don’t yet have a definitive date for the release.

It’s likely that the smartphone will carry a fingerprint scanner, but won’t offer a removable battery or microSD slot.
